Just wondering if anyone knows the answer to this. My XBL account expires in September. I want to renew it (I'm a Halo 2 freak) but I'm also pretty sure that I'll be buying an XBox 360 within a few months of release (if not release date). If the XBox Live account I buy won't carry over to 360, I'm tempted to let it expire, buy the new console on release date (which is ~6 weeks after the XBL account goes down) and buy the XBL "gold" service then. Unfortunately I'll lose all of my Halo 2 stats and username. Anyone know if the XBL accounts will count towards the new system? Thanks!
